Get your sample ready

Please prepare samples of each material you wish to join. This includes samples of the top, bottom, and any intermediary layers you wish to join in your application.

​Samples should be prepared as sheared coupons measuring 3" X 1.5".

​Any additional information you can provide, specific to your application, is going to help in evaluating joining technologies; including part drawings and technical specifications.
